Teacher's Comments

Congratulations to all of you for doing so well on Quiz #1. Your answers showed thoughtful reflection of the many topics we've discussed so far. The bad news is this: Those of you who saved your essay questions on the Zip disk will have to retype your answers IF you didn't print a hardcopy of your answers. We've been unable to recover any data on that disk. I have posted the three essay questions on this page if you need to redo these for class on Friday. Sorry for any inconvenience. I also lost about three weeks of work for one of my UNL classes, and some software I had purchased.
